Rihards Kuksiks - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Budivelnik Kyiv (Ukraine, Superleague)
Career: Arizona State (USA-NCAA, 2007-11); Valencia (Spain-ACB, 2011-12); Lagun Aro GBC (Spain-ACB, 2012-13); Budivelnik Kyiv (Ukraine-Superleague, 2013)


A sniper of considerable talent, Rihards Kuksiks returned to Europe in 2011 with high hopes, following a successful four-year stint at Arizona State University where he played alongside James Harden. However, Kuksiks potential in Europe has never properly been reached. Following a less-than-successful stint in Spain, first with Valencia then Lagun Aro GBC, the small forward made a mid-season move in early 2013 to play in the Ukrainian Superleague for Budivelnik, under national team coach Bagatskis. His arrival was too late to make any impact on Budivelnik's Eurocup semi-final run, but he began to find his feet in the domestic play-offs. With his confidence now returning, Kuksiks will be an integral part of the Latvian plans in Slovenia.
